With an 0-6 playoff record, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has yet to achieve anything more than regular season success with the star-crossed franchise.

Despite losing being one-and-done in four straight playoff appearances, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis expects to stay with the team.
On Sunday became the first and only team in NFL history to lose in the first round of the playoffs in four straight seasons, which has raised many questions as to whether Lewis deserves more opportunities to coach the team when he clearly has been unable to get the Bengals over the hump.
“It’s my plan (to return),” Lewis said, per The Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s not about me. It’s about our football team, wherever our football team is.”
The team is 0-6 in the playoffs under Lewis – all of those losses coming in the first round. The Bengals are currently going through a 7-game playoff losing streak dating back nearly a quarter-century. He joined Jim Mora Sr. as the only two coaches in NFL lore to lose their first six postseason appearances, and has the second most regular season wins without a playoff win in NFL history – second only to Mora.
“I wish I knew (how to change it),” DE Robert Geathers said. “We would have had it done by now. Just comes down to, I don’t know, I think everyone in the locker room wants it.”
WR Mohamed Sanu told reporters, “I don’t know, I really don’t. We are just going to have to see. It’s just frustrating and embarrassing. It’s tiring having this feeling, the same talk, the same situation over and over. Something’s got to change.”
